Most Helpful Positive Review Lovely Lightweight Addition
I've been using Dermalogica products for over 15 years now and am excited to try new products as they are developed. I initially received a sample of Hydrablur Primer with my regular order and set it aside, as I've been using the Skinperfect Primer for quite some time with great results. On a day when my schedule was pretty packed and my skin was showing some fatigue, I took a break to mist my fact with the Antioxidant Hydramist, then add a couple dots of Dynamic Skin Recovery. I picked up the Hydrablur Primer sample and used it around my mouth area, sides of my nose and just a tiny dot under each eye. What an amazing difference! It smoothed fine lines and softened a couple of larger pores, making my skin look overall less tired and smoothed. I take very good care of my skin, using Dermalogica products from start to finish. I'll be fifty this year and live in a dry climate, so I'm careful to moisturize throughout the day. What's so nice about having Hydrablur Primer as another option is that I can use it over light foundation or concealer without it affecting the color balance. I have eastern european, ivory skin, if that helps others to know what this primer compliments. For me, it provides a bit of a shimmery glow when used last on top of other products. As with most Dermalogica products, a little goes a long way. Try it out sometime as a brightening smoother.
Most Helpful Critical Review Bummer.
I love Dermalogica products and thought I would venture into their world of primers. I wasn't impressed with this one. With a name like "hydrablur" I expected a gel consistency that would be moisturizing. Instead, it has more of a thick consistency but without the feeling of silicone. I also expected this product to prevent fine lines and fill pores. My pores look slightly better after applying this product, but this does nothing to aid with fine lines! I have tried this primer with several foundations and still experience creasing. At nearly $50, I obviously expect perfection. On the plus side, it does seem to make my forehead less oily.
I will not buy this product again.

Ever since Too Faced changed their formula for primed and poreless primer... I switched to Hydrablur. I love it. very happy my search for a new primer after years was quick and easy.

I use this every day to smooth out pores
Love this! Makes my makeup look flawless every time!
Karen from Camp Hill PA
I've used other primers over the years and this is by far the best! Will never buy any other primer!
Love this Primer!
BYoung from Hanford, CA
I have tried many different primers. Too faced, Stella, Benefit, MAC, Barr Minerals, and NARS. Each one made me breakout. I was beginning to think it was my skin. This is the holy grail of primers! My makeup stays in place, it's not oily, and gives my skin a matte finish. It's amazing. Highly recommend!
Nice lightweight texture with nice coverage
Melissa from Rio Linda, CA
This is my second time purchasing. I use as a primer layered under the age smart tinted primer with sunscreen. I like the nice light coverage that this has and would probably wear alone if it had sunscreen in it.
I would buy this product again and again.

It gives you a subtle hint of color while being a makeup primer
Worth every penny!
Kayluhhhhh from Ripon, CA
I am absolutely obsessed with this primer! It smooths everything out so my foundation looks flawless. Days that I don't feel like a full face of make up I just put this on and it gives the perfect tint for a "no make up" look.
Julie from Montana
Love this. Smoothed out my skin and silky soft to the touch
absolutely love !
Sophie from Houston Texas
I love this primer. I got a kit with a few things in it for Christmas and this is now my new fav skin care Brand! The primer is almost silky smooth on your skin, super hydrating, and doesn't have a bad smell! Leaves my skin extremely soft and pointless ! Highly recommend. Goes amazing under makeup or alone!
I wouldn't buy again

This primer made my skin immediately turn red and itchy and made me start to peel. It stayed really irritated for a few days, but on the plus side, it made my pores look pretty invisible.
It really blends well
big dog lady from Alexandria va
After cleansing I apply the hydrablur. It does help even out my skin tone.
Goes on very smoothly.
Hiimcass from West Chester, Pa
Applying after moisturize sets in. And sometimes even under perfect primer for some real perfection. Not over oily, really does leave a matte finish. Creamy smooth to apply. My sensitive skin loves it.
Love this primer!
Riverrat from Oregon
It goes on smooth and evens out my skin. It hides large pores and keeps my foundation on all day.
Pores are no more!
Stacey from New Jersey
This primer really does blur your skin. I put it on my pores and my acne scarring and it blurs them perfectly so my foundation can apply smoothly over top. it is definitely worth the money.
I would buy this item again, definitely!
R from USA
I use it as a primer under make-up for a smooth canvas.
Won't leave home without it.
Donna from Gainesville, FL
I use it everyday when I where makeup. No shine and it looks great.
LOVE this product
Hailee from Dallas, TX
Really love how this product feels on my face. Has kind of a cinnamon scent which I don't really care for but it's not enough to deter me.
Not worth the money
Elizabeth from Boston
Didn't really cover anything and left my face very oily. Disappointed. Returned back to the store.
Can't live without it!
Kayla from Modesto, CA
My mom had purchased this for herself but wasn't using it much so she gave it to me. I'm a little upset that she did because I LOVE IT! I tend to pick at my face anytime there's a blemish and so I have little scabs or flaky skin and whenever I'd put on foundation it would sink into every crevasse. With this primer my face is so smooth! Just wish it was a little bit cheaper so I won't break the bank when i need to buy more!!
Not worth the price
Sam Ll from Long Beach, CA.
I always heard this product was amazing, yadayada. It personally did nothing for my skin. Didn't really blur imperfections/pores. My foundation didn't lay any nicer on my skin. Skin definitely felt soft after application, but that's it.
This product is really amazing.
Just Danielle from Palm Coast, FL
This product is great! I've been using this product with and without powder foundation. Usually powder sits in my pores on my cheeks even with primer. Not with this product. My skin looks flawless and it doesn't look like I'm trying to hide my freckles. At 42, last night someone said I look like my 18 year old's sister!!
Perfect combo of primer and moisturizer
Mercedes from San Jose, California
I purchased this item by the recommendation of an Ulta employee. I was looking for something that worked well with my oily skin and would also cover my pores. This worked wonders! It was a bit out of my budget, but when she tested it on me and showed me that it also turns matches my skin tone when applied, I was sold! It's something I can also wear when I don't want to wear any makeup but I also don't want the world to see my horrible pores. Perfect amount of blur for a natural look! I would definitely recommend this!
Mrs Mibbs from Romsey
I have been using dermalogica products for the last twenty five years. As the ageing process sets in, my skin tends to dry out more quickly! My skin Therapist introduced the hydrablur primer combined with the Intensive Moisture Balance. Since I have been using them both together my skin has regained a healthy soft young look!

keeps your make up forever
One of the best primers!
Fernando from West Covina
As soon as I found out about this product I fell in love. I will sometimes use it alone or pair it with my foundation and it looks flawless every time. I even use it on clients when I do their makeup and they always look great; their pore size is dramatically reduced and their face looks blurred and perfected. They also love that it changes to match their skin tone. 10/10 would recommend!
